During my recent trip to the City of Love, I have come to a conclusion: When making a trip to Paris, be sure to leave plenty of room in your luggage! Why? The city’s legendary pharmacies beckons!
In the recent years, the French Pharmacy labels have been causing a real buzz in the beauty world as their cult products are acclaimed for their effectiveness and care for sensitive and problematic skin without the price tag.
Not going to Paris anytime soon? No worries, I have found an E-shop in the UK that stocks these products! Check out: www.escentual.com !
5 Best French Pharmacy products:
This is a multipurpose moisturising cream rich in natural active ingredients. It is deeply moisturising which can be used by babies, children and adults on both the face and the body! The cream is created with a rich infusion of shea butter, beeswax, soy and aloe vera. The cream is incredibly versatile- it can be used as a make-up remover, a face mask, make-up primer, and as a daily moisturiser! That is a winner for me!
This is a gently cleanser for sensitive, normal to dry skin which removes impurities using micelles, which micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance. Added decongesting active ingredients prevent irritation, making the skin feel instantly refreshed, perfectly clean and free from all make-up – including water resistant mascara.
